“Two great stays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Great location in Mestre, with easy access to buses into Venice and from/to airport. Very friendly and helpful, including help with luggage. Breakfast was the best in our 12 day trip in Venezia, the woman in charge was cheerful and a delight to have around at breakfast time. Room comfortable and size fine.

The hotel was very nice, but we were a little disappointed with the service we received. No help was offered with our bags, and nor was it offered to a young couple checking in just before us who were trying to get a baby and pushchair, as well as their bags, upstairs with no lift. Rooms were nice, and breakfast was very good. The biggest hassle we faced was trying to find the parking lot. We were given a small map when we arrived, but still got quite lost. Parking was on a very small section about 200 metres from the hotel. Suggestion - a sign on the parking lot would be helpful, something like "Parking, Hotel Vivit" perhaps. Location of the hotel was good, and it was nice to be in a pedestrian area. No, I wouldn't stay here again. First impressions really do count.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, do without the view as the square can be quite noisy. If you have a renta...

I have been staying at the Vivit on business for years..... Great location, friendly staff and good value.

The Piazza has everything from shops to bars and decent places to eat as well as an ice cream seller and an Irish bar for the sport and beer.

Ask for a room overlooking the square on the second or third floor.....

See you soon

I stayed here 4 nights on work. There isn't a lift, so you have to carry your baggage up yourself. But the guy at the reception gives a hand. The hotel's in a pedestrian square, so the taxi doesn't actually come up to the front doors. Lots of restaurants near by. There's free wifi, which is useful. Breakfast is fairly typical small hotel fare that you see everywhere. People are decent. The bus for venice is very close.

We opted for this Hotel as it was handy to visit Venice. Liked the idea of a bit of luxury and the older style of decor and it was to some degree very nice. Lovely large room on the first floor. Well appointed high ceiling large room with King bed, large bathroom, big comfy sitting chair, large desk, and plenty of space for all our bags. But our large opening windows had no view (only down to the footpath leading to another street), or straight across to the aircon unit attached to the opposite building. The day we arrived it was 35 degrees celicus. Great, we can check in and go to our aircon room and change into dry clothes before heading out on some sightseeing. Aircon not working. Long story but apparently doesn't come on until 6.00pm and shuts off at 8.00am. That night's overnight temp was 24. Nevermind. Breakfast was very good. Well done here, good fresh juice, nice selection to start the day. Would we stay here again, probably not would opt for a modern hotel, just to ensure the aircon for the warmer climate.

Room Tip: Our room was a nice and average but not for the hot day with no aircon to cool down in. Perhaps room...

I stayed here for one night on a mini trip to Venice. We were travelling from Treviso airport, so this hotel was on the way into Venice city itself. We caught the airport bus for €7, which took about an hour. The coach stopped at the Mestre train station, which was about a 15-minute walk (straight up Strada Cappuccina). Travelling into Venice city was also about a 15-minute bus ride (no.7) which we caught from just around the corner. The guy on reception was very helpful, gave us a map, and even sold us the bus tickets (€2.60 return).

I'd booked a suite as it wasn't much more expensive than a double room, which was huge! A four-seater dining table, a jacuzzi bath, a king-size bed... very good value indeed.

The hotel is really convenient for Mestre centre - it's right on the piazza (which had a food festival on the weekend we were there), many shops and also a few bars (with an Irish bar next door). It was great to go out in the evenings somewhere different to where we had spent the day times.

Breakfast was ok - continental but a large variety of everything... cheese, cold meats, eggs, cereals, breads, pastries, juices, hot drinks. Great value all in all!

Room Tip: Go for a suite - it's a good deal for not many extra euros.

We stayed here for four nights in a good room and enjoyed the excellent breakfast. The hotel is value for money and a quiet place to stay. Another website advertised this hotel as 900 Metres from Mestre rail station. We walked from the station and later clocked the distance in a cab and discovered the true distance to be 2 kilometres!

Room Tip: Catch a cab or bus from train station. Don't pull a bag for two kilometres.
